Bella was once a lost dog, but now she lives happily with her people, Lucas and Olivia, only occasionally recalling the hardships in her past. Then a weekend camping trip turns into a harrowing struggle for survival when the Rocky Mountains are engulfed by the biggest wildfire in American history. The raging inferno separates Bella from her people and she is lost once more.
Alone in the wilderness, Bella unexpectedly finds herself responsible for the safety of two defenseless mountain lion cubs. Now she’s torn between two equally urgent goals. More than anything, she wants to find her way home to Lucas and Olivia, but not if it means abandoning her new family to danger. And danger abounds, from predators hunting them to the flames threatening at every turn.
Can Bella ever get back to where she truly belongs? (publisher)
I was hooked from the first page of A Dog’s Courage. Author W. Bruce Cameron has a knack for telling a story. Cinematic in scope (you’ll understand as you read) this novel is an edge-of-your-seat read. Bella, the star and narrator of the book, along with her boy and his wife, were enjoying a weekend camping trip in the mountains when they were suddenly faced with a disaster that had continual consequences. I really don’t want to say more except if you’re a dog person and like adventure stories you need to read this book!
